Nothing better than adding a little bit of greenery around the back patio. J and I took a trip to the local nursery and found some plants to add to our yard.
First, lavender, which is probably some of my favorite. Then we added some mint. After some research we found that mint was great to repel insects because of the odor it puts off.
Here’s what you need:
1) planters – I used one for each plant, a 12″ for lavender and 8″ for the mint. You want the mint to have more of a shallow pot because of their roots.
3) potting soil
The project took about 30 minutes to finish.
That’s it. Pretty simple and makes a great addition to any backyard. I can’t wait to keep adding plants and flowers to make our yard a little more homier.
